The Manchester City XI to start 2017 with a bang
Manchester City host Burnley tonight in a very tricky Premier League encounter, coming just two days after a massive clash away to Liverpool.
Every team knows that dealing with a heavy schedule at Christmas and New Year is the reality of life in the Premier League, but that doesn’t make it any easier when it comes around.
Playing twice in two days is sure to take its toll on the team and perhaps the performance too.
That said, Guardiola will have been preparing for these matches and will treat the Burnley clash with the same importance as the Liverpool encounter.
City have a squad capable of dealing with the rough schedule and somewhat fortunately, key players will likely be given the opportunity to rest when the FA Cup’s third round takes place the following weekend.
This is the Manchester City XI that we think can get the job done vs. Burnley to kick-off 2017 in winning fashion.
